    I thought I was set to pre-order the Note 8, then after seeing all these sites and videos comparing the Note 8 vs the rumoured specs/features of the iPhone 8, I decided to hold off and wait for Apple to reveal the iPhone 8.

    I've never owned an iPhone before, but I've worked on many iPhone devices for work, so I'm open to give them a try if the specs/features look good.

    It's going to take a huge upgrade from the current series to get me to even consider another iPhone. I came back to Android for yhe Note 7 after a brief stint with the iPhone 6 Plus and 6S Plus(for the 2nd time with apple) and I don't forsee me making the jump again. It's easy for me to toy around with the iPhone though because my wife still uses the 7 Plus so I'll at least toy around with the next model. But unless they make some serious changes to iOS I'll stick to Android.

    Nope. I had the IPhone 7 Plus very brief time. I just didn't like it.

    Pretty much what gpatrick said. I left when the Note 5 came out due to battery and sd card, and figured it was as good of time as any to try the iphone again, which is what I had prior to the Note 1. Came back for the Note 7, and decided after both recalls to just stick it out with apple another year with the 7 plus. It has felt like an eternity, and after the initial oh, this is different and new wore off, I became bored. Maybe going to IOS will give you a little longer of the oh factor, but it won't for long. From what I've read, much of what apple is introducing is their version of features already in the android world. I'm sure some is going to be their own innovations but much of that iphone 8, android fans have used before. Just not in the apple ecosystem. Also like gpatrick, my wife regularly pre-orders the largest of new iphones every year, so I'm sure I'll get to try out the 8. I have missed the note since my 4, and can't wait to get out of the ios world!

    Edited: for wording.

    Short answer, no.

    Long answer, sorta. I think there are two great phones coming in the next 6 weeks. Very hard to pull the trigger on anything without all the facts. But the deals on the note 8 are kinda awesome for those eligible.

    No, I find iOS boring and some settings annoying to deal with. I'm actually scared of what the price will be in Canada, after seeing the Note 8 price

    This is a great time of the year for phones, isn't it? A lot of excitement about awesome devices.

    Great question! I'm an iPhone user. I have an android phone zte boost max I only mess around with.So I'm familiar with Android. I currently have an iPhone 7 work phone ans 6splus as a personal phone. I left android for a 4s and never looked back, that is until Ios just began to bore me. I was all set to pre-order the note 7 and then I saw Sept 12 is the supposed iPhone event, so I decided to wait. Then this evening I went to best buy and messed around with the demo Note 8 and I was blown back...Octacore and 6 gigs the phone was fast and felt better than my iphone 7 in matte black. However as a informed consumer I would like to see what apple has to offer, but it will pale in comparison to the productivity and power use of the note because Ios has gotten so mundane! So I'm not going to wait to see if apple has a magical surprise up there sleeve.

    I have many Android phones so was planning to skip the Note 8 because I'll always buy the latest iPhone and Pixel. But damn Samsung tempted me to buy with offer for Note 7 owners and couldn't resist and took the bait.

    I'm curious about the iPhone and the Pixel. I'm on T-mobile so the Pixel unfortunately is out. The IPhone shines really bright for a few months but then I miss Android. LG's boring UI cancels out that one for me.

    No. I think I've heard enough of what Apple are planning with the iPhone 8 and I'm not interested. I say this as an iPhone 7 plus user and I also have an iPad Pro, AirPods, an Apple TV and an Apple Watch. The rumoured prices of the new iPhone 8 are just ridiculous. They are charging extortionate prices for a lot of things that have been available on android for a few years. They are hyping the phone up as a revolutionary upgrade but the things they are offering are standard fare for Samsung phones. Also the iPhone 8 will be too small for me. With the new aspect ratio it will end up being smaller than my 7 plus.

    I've pre-ordered the note 8 and I'll keep my iPhone 7 plus.

    No, I left iOS in 2011. Why change everything to switch to another OS. Plus I am a big user of the SPen. I also don't change phones that often.

    I keep hearing this same rhetoric about the iPhone being boring but what about the Note 8 is exciting?!

    I mean it’s basically what the S8+ should have been. Samsung is comparing the cameras of the Note 8 to the 7 Plus, a phone that has been out for 11 months and is on the brink of being refreshed so it’s pointless. No 3x zoom like the rumor mill was stating, so again Samsung just catching up not being the leader. Blah blah I know the response already well “The Note 8 has dual OIS camera modules” but we’ll see what tricks Apple has up their sleeve in a couple weeks.

    They keep pushing Bixby, another useless and annoying feature along with Dex another pointless add-on.

    So why is it ok for the Apple bashing but “Oh my the almighty Note 8 and Samsung must not be questioned on anything! It is perfect!”

    The iPhone Edition and 7S variants will sell better on its first weekend of preorders than this thing will.

    Also when will the Note 8 get Oreo? Samsung didn’t even mention that in the keynote. That could have been a good bone to throw out there.

    I keep reading leaks (surprisingly the day the Note 8 is available for preorder) is that the 8 well be delayed. Plus limited quantities. With the 7S, 7s+ also coming out, I don't think people will jump on the 8.

    I'm not an Apple user, so I wouldn't get an iPhone. Saw them, helped others wth them, read about them, etc., but just not interested.

    iPhone hasn't been innovative in years, I have FINALLY decided to stay away from them after the galaxy 8 launch earlier this year. even the new iPhone looks like a galaxy, so sad.
